- pk-debuginfo-install [--help] [--verbose] [--simulate] [--no-depends]
pk-debuginfo-install is the command line client for installing debuginfo packages.
WHY DO I NEED DEBUGINFO PACKAGES?
When a program crashes, it's often useful to send the developer a backtrace which contains symbol names and variable contents, rather than memory addresses. To make this possible, extra packages called debug packages can be installed.
This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
- Show summary of options.
- Do not be interactive and skip the confirmation before the packages are installed.
- Show extra debugging information.
- Don't actually install any packages, only simulate what would be installed.
- Do not scan for, or install dependencies of the core packages.
- Do not display information or progress to the terminal.
- Success, at least one package was installed
- Failed with miscellaneous internal error.
- Failed to get software sources list.
- Failed to enable software sources.
- Failed as nothing to do.
- Failed to find dependent packages.
- Failed to install.
- Failed to disable software sources.
